Grilled French Toast

Our buddy Meathead was the inspiration for this super easy and delicious recipe. We love nothing better than cooking breakfast on the grill over the weekends but French Toast was a new one for us on the grill. The results were exceptionally good and everyone agreed it was not only visually stunning but the finish on the GrillGrates gave it a truly unique flavor.
